I am blessed to be around remarkable people. There are always Takeaways to learn. That is what I am sharing on this podcast.

Takeaways – Life. Lessons. Learned. explores learning from the wisdom of others.

Laura Sussman is one of the funniest people you’ll ever meet. Her unique brand of humor shows up in this podcast if you’re paying attention. As owner of Kraft – Sussman Funeral and Cremation Services, Laura and her partner Wendy oversee 450 funerals a year!

Growing up in the Jewish community I’ve always known of Laura as the Director of the Jewish Community Center. She was a non-profit executive for over 25 years before starting Kraft-Sussman. I was introduced to her in 2013 to help her find a building to purchase. What I could never have imagine is that I would meet her again in her capacity as a licensed funeral director when my mother passed away a year later.

P.S At the end of the episode Laura mentioned a life saving App called Vital Ice. You can find it by clicking the link and using the download code 8624. This public safety app stores user medical information, emergency contacts and more, and can be accessed by EMS and first responders in situation where the user is unable to speak or otherwise incapacitated. 

What can you learn from a person like Laura? Here are just a few of the Takeaways that we discussed on this episode.

  • What do you say, and not say, at a funeral.
  • How to start leaving your legacy even if you’re broke or busy.
  • Action is more important than words. Action is also more important than wealth!

I hope you enjoy!
